Life after City Year with Mack

My name is Mack and I was the Team Leader at St. HOPE from 2018-2019. I now work at UC Davis Health as the Assistant Director of Development for the School of Medicine. My role is to fundraise for medical research and health initiatives.

I sincerely mean this when I say I wouldn’t be where I am today without City Year. During service, I was given the opportunity to figure out my LACY (Life After City Year) plan and connect with people in my field who guided me to the job I have now. I reached out to staff members and took on projects that allowed me to gain as much experience as possible in development. I also found my job through a City Year networking event.

I can’t thank the staff enough for all of their support and mentorship. City Year was truly a time of personal and professional growth and I’m forever grateful.
